This is a call to all CRM enthusiasts and CRM haters: help us build the CRM of your dreams
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Developers of the Zurmo Open Source Customer Relationship Management application today announced the organization is crowdsourcing real-world feedback for upcoming features and functionality in anticipation of its commercial version coming out in the spring. The project leaders believe the Zurmo Development Roadmap should be driven by the real needs of everyday users. The Zurmo team is currently reviewing candidates applying to take part in an Early Adopter Program designed to garner feedback and case studies. In exchange for taking part in the program, participants receive a hosted instance of Zurmo, the committed support of project developers and veteran CRM consultants, and privileged access to new features and updates.
“As Zurmo has matured, we’ve expanded beyond being just a project that is of interest to a technical crowd. We’ve seen an increase in people utilizing the system for day-to-day business use cases and we want to be sure our commercial offering falls perfectly in line with their specific needs,” states Zurmo co-Founder Ray Stoeckicht. “This is a call to all CRM enthusiasts and CRM haters: help us build the CRM of your dreams. We’ll not only listen to your feedback, it will directly impact our roadmap.”
“CRM users are deep in the trenches and we want to build functionality to help them win their day to day battles,” states Zurmo Community Manager Stafford McKay. “We have been listening to our technical community to help us improve Zurmo over the past two years. Now it’s time to engage with more business users, as they will be using the application on a regular basis.”
